Abduction of comrade of Lalith Kumar Weeraraj and Kuhan Murngansan who were the members of the FLSP is a one of the major fundamental democratic and human rights violation in the country which was occurred in 9th December 2011.

These two comrades were abducted and disappeared primarily because they have been in the forefront of the struggle of the tens of thousands people who have been disappeared/abducted, and on behalf of political prisoners who continue to languish in detention camps.

The North and East areas particularly in Jaffna is militarized by the Mahinda Rjapaksha government the entire area is under constant incidents such as arrest and detention cannot possibly take place without the knowledge of the military authorities.
It is clear the then Defence secratary Gotabhya Rajapaksha and the security authorities are collectively responsible for abduction of Lalit and Kuhan.These type of shameful acts directly violate the democratic rights of the people and particularly the aspirations of Tamil community.

Subsequent to the abduction two Habeas Corpus writ applications were instituted in the Court of Appeal and the Court Of Appeal has directed the Magistrate Court of Jaffna to conduct an inquiry to find the facts and the whereabouts of the two comrades.
During the inquiry credible facts were coming to the surface that the former Defense Secretary and current presidential candidate Gotabha Rajapaksha was aware about the said abduction.

Thereafter the Magistrate Court of Jaffna has summoned him to appear on 3rd of May 2019 whereas a lawyer appeared on his behalf and informed the court it was not a convenient date to him. The Court granted another date namely 21st of June 2019 and on the said date he submitted a medical report stating that he is not in position to give evidence.

Thereafter the court directed him to come to court on 27th September 2019 and just three days before the inquiry he purportedly obtained an interim order from the Court of Appeal without notice to the other party staying the operation of the summons issued to him.

This conduct of the Gotabhaya Rajapksha it self shows he is the culprit of the abductions took place in the post war period.
Front line Socialist party organized a protest and a press briefing in jaffna to condemn this shameful conduct of the Rajapaksha and the bias stand of the court.
